Historical Sites


Rowley is an amazing ghost town with an undying spirit!  It is also a must to visit when travelling through the Canadian Badlands.  The community's main attractions include the newly restored elevators which have been designated as a provincial historic site, the Rowley Church, Prairie School Museum and the Yesteryear Artifacts Museum (housed in the original railway station).  The most famous stop in Rowley is Sam's Saloon, a well-known local watering hole and meeting place.  Be sure to stop by on the last Saturday of the month (5-9pm) for Pizza Night and great entertainment!  Free camping is available in designated areas and all donations are greatly appreciated!

Rowley is 8 miles (12.8km) north of the junction of Highway 56, 9 & 27 (Morrin Corner), then 3 miles (5 km) west on Township Road 32-4.  For tours or even bookings, call 403-368-3757, 403-368-2355 or 403-368-3816.
